Nihilism is fun and you should play it. The browser game, I mean.

As the title says, Nihilism is fun. And I don’t mean the whole philosophical concept that your life doesn’t matter, but a game I found on the internet.

The Game is a simple arcade game, with squares and arrows as the only characters. You just need to move the mouse and nothing else, and it’s all based on a mechanic of avoiding things and using an “auto shoot” to kill enemies.

It’s like a half an hour game with quick “endure 30 seconds” levels (like 10 of them).

Also, the game is supposed to have some deep meaning, but It’s too hidden or I am too stupid to get what exactly wants to say. I guess, following the name, it doesn’t matter.

It’s nothing out of this world, I know. You probably have tons of other paid games larger and better done, but for some random browser game I found, it’s surprisingly fun and smart. And it’s probably a good basis for a larger full game. That’s why I think it’s worth sharing and worth the (short) time.

New Nintendo 2DS and successor time

A few days ago, against all expectations, Nintendo released a new version of the 3DS family, the  New Nintendo 2DS XL.

 

It’s true that we all knew that 3DS has some life left, new Pikmin, Kirby and fire emblem among others will give us some new experiences to experience on the console, but the system itself is something that gives the feeling of having arrived at its peak of units sold, where almost all its public already have gotten one or another model.

So why this? Why taking all the words left on the bucket to make another 3DS? (Ironically, without 3D). Well, a couple of things come to my mind.

First, for the “late bloomers” or however you wanna name them. There is always people who didn’t buy the system in its time, and want to enjoy it with the full catalog of games already completed to pick. We’ve seen the Wii mini and the game boy micro, why not this?

Second, a possible elderly life. Nintendo was talking not so along about having a 3ds successor. They want something to introduce kids and reluctant people to their games, thus, with a cheaper option, this can be accomplished. But Switch has just hit the market, and launching another big product when its main event is doing so well is a bit dangerous. So maybe giving 3ds more life is a better option, for now, after all, it’s still doing great in selling software and its enormous library has no rival in handheld consoles.

Maybe this two things, maybe neither. The only thing I know is that this console looks great, and is probably the final version of 3ds, minus the lack of 3ds, it has all the things that make good the machine in a pretty shape. And if you don’t have already a 3ds, I would highly recommend it.
